Juan Diaz and Juan Manuel Marquez met for the final time before their anticipated rematch tomorrow night.
Marquez made his return to lightweight by coming in at a trim and cut 133 ½ pounds. Diaz, who is said to have had a phenomenal camp, looked very lean right at the 135 pound limit. Gone was the Baby Bull’s usual pudgy stomach. However, it remains to be seen how much weight he puts on tomorrow.
Both men looked as if they made the weight comfortably. The fight will be for Marquez’s WBO and WBA titles.
In the first fight their weights were 134 ¼ for Marquez and 134 ½ for Diaz.
The PPV card begins tomorrow night at 9PM EST.
Robert Guerrero (138) vs. Joel Casamayor (138.5)
Rocky Juarez (132) vs. Jorge Linares (132.5)
Danny Jacobs (159) vs. Dmitry Pirog (160)
